This program is structured with two main components:
Battle Royale: Make Your First Fortnite® Style Video Game
Fans of Fortnite® we need you! Instead of playing the game, design your own. Using a professional 3D game development software, build levels and assets inspired by popular battle royale games like Fortnite®. Students can participate in eSports League matches against other schools across the country with a chance to have their levels featured in the Black Rocket master build of the game! This course includes cartoonish action and battle sequences. Student-created games will be available on a Black Rocket password-protected website to share with friends and family. Students will work in pairs or teams for most of the program.
Minecraft® Redstone Engineers
Take the next step beyond simply “playing” Minecraft® and become a true Redstone engineer. Expand your Redstone knowledge by constructing your own carnival with a variety of mini-games, roller coasters, and attractions powered by Redstone. Learn how to use Command and Structure blocks to incorporate them into your builds. Activate your skills and take your Minecraft® structures to the next level! Students must own a Java version of Minecraft® to access their projects at home. Tablet, phone, and game console versions of Minecraft® are not compatible. Students will work in pairs or teams for most of the program.
Mon-Thurs, 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
